Putting On Humility - Poem by Bernard F. Asuncion
Meekness may evoke vision
Of being on center stage;
Yet remaining modest amid
Honor, praise and prestige.
It may also elicit picture
Of someone saying 'I was wrong';
Or telling 'I need help' from
The group he does belong.
Yes, it brings into mind
Of one not expecting royal treatment;
Remaining lowly and meek,
Even if he is prominent.
It further educes one's image
Of putting others' interest first;
Reaching down to others
From pedestal of influence.
Lowliness leads to wisdom,
While pride to disgrace;
The former ends in honor,
As the latter in loss of success.
Humility brings wealth and life,
While ego carries castigation;
Modesty makes joy,
As pride puts one in destruction.
Hat in hand gains guidance,
As cap on head spawns strife;
Clothe not oneself with boastfulness,
Putting on humility in life.
